    I think most track for "o" is tinplate, meaning that factory track is thin sheet metal steel with a tin plating on it for corrosion resistance. I think you would need to buy solid rail and handlay the track like O scale modelers do. Mike's Train House track may be solid, but I don't remember for sure. Have you posted this question in the O gauge forum at the Gauge?
